    PanNan's Note:

    I know, I know, not another beef stew recipe. But, after reviewing 5 pages of beef stew recipes posted here, this does not appear to be a duplicate. It's our favorite. When I use my pressure cooker it's ready in less than an hour, and the flavor can't be beat. Note for the World Tour participants - stews are an English tradition, and typically include meat and root vegetables. English peas are also very common in British cookery.

      WOW great flavor. Ironically, I didnt end up using my pressure cooker, but the meat was wonderfully tender and the gravy was really tasty. I didnt have Maggi seasoning so I used kitchen boquet, a browning/gravy sauce.

      We really enjoyed this stew! It was easy to prepare, the instructions were clear, and the result was a thick and hearty stew. Next time I make this, I think I'll add some red wine after the meat is browned and the onions tender, then reduce. I think that this would give this dish the depth of flavor that would put it over the top. Thanks for a great recipe, Pan Nan! :)
